from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear what the motive is in all of this. they do say though that her credit cards have been used, but there was no apparent ransom that was discussed. a ransom never came up at all. we have more information now from the police chief here at aberdeen. >> he was driving her vehicle, which was a silver lincoln continental.
of families that are struggling today in this great country. it doesn't have to be this way. >> cnn white house correspondent dan lothian traveled with the president through ohio and pennsylvania this week and has more. >> reporter: well, wolf, the president had been campaigning in mostly big cities, attending fund-raisers surrounded by the rich and famous. but this bus tour took him to small towns in ohio and pennsylvania. people who supported him in 2008, and voters he's trying to hang on to come november. it's a more retail-style approach, but unlike the president's other official bus trips last year, this one has campaign written all over it. there's a big presidential seal on the door and the venue in the small city of maumee, ohio, has been carefully staged. white picket fences, a large american flag, and a soft story about his daughter. >> then it was malia's birthday yesterday. see, when she was small, i could say, all these fireworks i had arranged for her birthday. but she doesn't believe me anymore. >> reporter: but his speech turned tough when the president took on his opponen

to the records that cnn found, none of that 56 million has gone to direct services for veterans. >> making lots of money off of it. i mean, when you're talking about millions of dollars that people are doing by grabbing money from people who don't have it. >> who believe out of the goodness of their own heart that they are giving money to -- >> a worthy cause. >> reporter: the purpose is to try to explain to me why these numbers don't add up. cnn has been trying to reach the disabled veterans national foundation off and on for nearly two years. a public relations man did return our phone call outside the group's washington, d.c. headquarters in 2010, but the manager refused to talk. despite e-mails and more phone calls, our repeated requests for interviews were all denied. >> up to $2 billion is raised in the name of veterans in this country and it's so sad that a great deal, hundreds and millions of dollars, of our charitable dollars intended to help veterans, is being squandered and wasted by opportunists and individuals and companies that see it as a profit-making opportunity. >> reporter: d
't know her identity, her background, or who killed her, but in an exclusive to cnn this weekend, lieutenant steven spears shares never-before-seen information with us. i asked him where the body was found. >> princess doe's body was discovered in the cedar ridge cemetery in the northern part of new jersey. at the time she was discovered she was severely decomposed and as you had stated earlier, beaten quite severely. as a result of that her identification to this day has not been something that we were able to do, and throughout the years there's been a number of investigators involved in this case. i took the case in 1999, and my focus then and continues to be trying to identify princess doe. >> lieutenant spears, we're looking at this 3-d rendering that you have sent us. this is the first time it's been seen by anyone but investigators. can you just give us an idea of what we're looking at here and how critical this might snb. >> yes. i am very excited about this. a lot of times in cases as time goes on it becomes more difficult to deal with cases. i found with cold cases as t

expect to hear from them this afternoon. stay with cnn for more on the fires the rest of the day. >>> nearly 1.4 million people are still without power right now, and as the temps continue to rise, thousands of people across the country are enduring a fourth day without air conditioning. the power outages happened after that storm blasted through the east coast and midwest over the weekend and the outages are now scattered across 11 states and washington, we're talking indiana, ohio, west virginia, pennsylvania, maryland, virginia, delaware, kentucky, north carolina, new jersey and also illinois. all of these places without power and here's the most frustrating factors. the power companies are refusing to say when power will be restored. >>> here's a pretty incredible example of just how hot it's been. take a look at wisconsin. highway 29 in chippewa county. the pavement buckled because of the heat so an suv was headed down the road, hit the ramp, and it was sent airborne. we're told that everyone is okay and that the roadway has been repaved and is back open. >>> of all the time
-- www.vitac.com >>> i'm suzanne malveaux, this hour on "cnn newsroom" we're focusing on the death of an icon. the tens of thousands of people still left in the dark in the northeast. and a new political poll that shows president obama holding just a three-point lead over mitt romney. want to get right to it. >>> first, actor andy griffith has died. we all remember iconic show theme and his folksy manner made him a star in the 1960s. as sheriff andy taylor on "the andy griffith show." set in the fictional town of mayberry. griffith played a single bad who kept the peace and doled out advice in a country town. in the 1980s he found fame again in the courtroom drama "matlock." he was a member of the tv and christian music hall of fame. want to bring in our own larry king who joins us by phone who knows mr. griffith well. you interviewed him several times. give us your impressions, your sense of who he was. >> well, suzanne, he was an incredible person. not only as a talent but as a friend and as an individual. he was always kind and sweet and he was an underrated performer in my opin
in "cnn newsroom." >> good morning, and happy fourth of july to you too. >>> hot, hot, hot. today could be one of the hottest july fourths ever. that could happen in several major cities. heat, humidity, and thunderstorms will blanket the nation. >>> plus, this. >> just think of how many we got into one sentence. that was really impressive. what wrote this [ bleep ]? >> oh, new york mayor michael bloomberg unplugged at the nathan's hot dog wagon. seems he couldn't stomach the puns, like let me be frank. it's going to be a dog fight. and i'll relish it. it's bloomberg like we've never seen him. >>> also -- >> you can see the sparks flying all over the place. it was raining fire down on us. >> on the frontlines, colorado firefighters taking cnn with them as they fight the fires home by home. the fire chief telling the denver post this morning he knew the fire would happen, that it was a monster ready to awaken and kill. >>> and on this independence day, what's your definition of a hero? our men and women in the military? your mom, your dad? think about it. it's our talk back question of t
then they fired two real bullets. an autopsy report obtained by cnn shows them entering the side of his arm, indicating chamberlain was not facing the officers or had turned away. >> so the story that the police put out that he was an ax wielding black man trying to hurt a police officer is what it is, a flat-out lie. >> reporter: chamberlain's lawyers acknowledge he did throw out a silver object. >> at that moment, a bolt cutter comes from the police officers and removes the object. so from that point forward, there's absolutely no evidence that at any time mr. chamberlain had a weapon in his hands. >> reporter: there is no way to know. the taser video suddenly cuts off before the shots are fired. so you must have thought it is ironic in sort of the terrible way that someone summoned to your father's door to help save his life, if he had been having some kind of heart emergency -- >> yes. >> reporter: -- ended up shooting him. >> yes. and they took his life. unnecessarily. they didn't have to. >> reporter: chamberlain's niece wants to know why police couldn't defuse the confrontation and w
to helping to build greater awareness of the societal issue of child abuse. >> cnn's susan candiotti is joining us now. louis freeh led this study. it was very, very bitter and damming. >> reporter: it was, wolf. right out of the gate, louis freeh made it clear that children were victimized because four top penn state officials did nothing to stop jerry sandusky. and named names including a man's name synonymous with penn state university, the late coach joe paterno. from the moment jerry sandusky was marched before the public branded a predatory pedophile, a troubling question lingered, what did those at penn state university do to stop him? now the public has an answer. >> our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of sandusky's child victims by the most senior leaders at penn state. >> reporter: louis freeh, hired by the university to investigate its role in the jerry sandusky scandal delivered a scathing 267-page report. 430 interviews, 3.5 million pieces of evidence adding up to one major finding about what they did with evidence of
terrorism are here in colorado for the aspen institute security forum that's co-sponsored with cnn and "new york times." today i had a chance to conduct the first-ever public in-depth interview with u.s. navy admiral who planned the raid that killed osama bin laden. admiral william mcraven may not be a household name, but as you're about to see, he's a genuine u.s. hero. this is the guy who's sitting right here who had the guts to tell the commander in chief we should do it, let's do it. and when you ordered that raid and when you said -- you didn't even know for sure that bin laden was abbottabad at that compound about a mile or so away from the west point of pakistan, did you? >> let me make one thing clear, i didn't order the raid. >> but he told the president of the united states that he thought he could do it. [ laughter ] >> i mean, and this is not a small point. the fact of the matter is it was the president of the united states that ordered the raid. >> and he deserves an enormous amount of credit for that decision. >> he does. [ applause ] >> and when he came to the head of special
-down interviews including ones with cnn's wolf blitzer and piers morgan. still the obama campaign slammed romney as not ready for primetime while the trip got a more sympathetic response from the white house. >> these are high stakes enterprises that pulling them off is a lot harder than it looks. that they can be very tense especially if they're not going well. >> reporter: signaling that it's turning the page the romney campaign unveiled a new smartphone app adesigned to announce the pick in a few weeks. >> i know what it's like to hire people and wonder whether you're going to make ends meet down the road. >> reporter: romney never openly criticized the president during this overseas trip, but all of that will change later this week when romney heads to the battleground state of colorado, joe. >> jim, i think the question at this stage is whether we've seen an apology from the aide who had that sort of misuse of words there, if you will. >> reporter: joe, there was no official apology from the campaign, but that aide did call a couple of reporters, he did apologize over the phone and the apol
video of the suspect, james holmes' booby trapped apartment tells cnn it was rigged with more than 30 homemade grenades and ten gallons of gasoline. the source says that would have created a fireball knocking out walls engulfing the entire building in flames undoubtedly killing many more people. cnn's ed lavandera is joining us now once again from aurora, colorado. ed, what else are you learning? there are new developments emerging even as we speak. >> reporter: well, there's a great deal going on behind the scenes, but now there's a great effort to make sure that the principle players and many of the people involved in these investigations no longer speak publicly about what is going on. the judge issuing a gag order. ever since that has happened, it's become much more difficult to be able to report on this story and to keep up with what is going on. but we're told a few days ago by the police chief here in aurora that today, tuesday, would be the day defense attorneys would get a chance to go through the movie theater to do their own analysis inside the movie theater and gather thei
he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo

on. cnn's tom foreman has been investigating. tom, take us inside what was clearly designed to be a death trap, that apartment. you've been looking at how it was all assembled. >> yeah, wolf. this is really one of the great mysteries of the story. exactly what was the configuration inside this apartment. i want to talk about what we do know. look at this video from a few days back when authorities were trying to get in to this place. they were looking through the window moving very slowly. all explanations are because inside they were being met with an array of different explosives and triggers and potential problems. what do we know about what was inside that apartment? well f you look at this diagram here, it gives you some idea of what we're pretty certain of at this point. in the middle of the room were about 30 of these canisters, each about the size of a softball. this is the same sort of thing they use for fireworks displays that shoot up into the air. these we believe were packed with black powder. now, the way they were packed and the way they were wired would make

[ applause ] >> reporter: at first the applause for mitt romney at the naacp was polite. but that did not last long. when the gop contender pledged to get the national debt under control in part by repealing the president's health care law, the crowd let him have it. >> and so to do that i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care. and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> reporter: the boos lasted 15 seconds. the most sustained negative response romney has received in this campaign. the chair of the naacp's national board said members objected to romney's use of the term obama care, a buzz word coined by the critics. >> that was a loaded statement. and the crowd

, take a look at it. >> reporter: but finally he gave cnn the news. >> the supreme court is the final word, right? the highest court in the land? they said it was a tax, didn't they? so it's a tax. that's what they say it is. >> reporter: the main reason the already cautious romney was especially careful here is because the gop message on the mandate is already muddled. earlier this week a top romney advisor said the candidate did not think the insurance mandate is a tax but rather a penalty. what democrats call it. >> the governor believes what we put in place in massachusetts was a penalty. and he disagrees with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax. >> reporter: that enfuruated republicans in washington for imposing what they call the biggest tax in american history. democrats here shadowing romney's event didn't miss a beat. >> i think people see the president as being a strong leader standing up for his principles and moving forward. we'll let mitt romney argue with himself. >> reporter: romney's news came during a brief bit of independence day action in an otherwise quie
